A Manual for Beginner Users – ‘Chromecast Finally Works in Hotels’ is a Google-approved manual available in Google’s Play Store, too.
Tracy works for a company in the computer/internet industry whose job includes (but not limited to) tech support work and technical writing. Noticing that a lot of people have chosen to stick with Windows XP on their computers in this year of 2014 instead of upgrading, this manual was put together for Windows XP users only. Tracy has used this setup to get the Chromecast working in a hotel since 2013.
* If you are a Windows 7 user, then please type ‘Tracy Mitchell’ into WB&B’s search box to pull up the Windows 7 version of this manual.

This manual is specific to the the TL-WR702N router using Windows XP to get the Chromecast set up on a hotel’s WIFI network. If you have a different router by the same brand or a different brand altogether, then the settings may differ, and you may need to seek a manual for the specific router you have if you do not wish to buy the router used in this manual.
You will find that the Chromecast device will not offer instructions nor settings on how to set this up with with this specific router or any router. You will also find that no electronic company’s router will give you specific instructions on how to connect their routers to a Chromecast. Because there are multiple devices that can be connected to any router and so on.
There are many routers in existence, created way before Chromecast was even a thought. So make sure to ask any person posting instruction anywhere online if he or she would be kind enough to let you know the exact router they used. Otherwise, you will likely become frustrated when you run into issues with their instructions. No two routers are exactly alike. That’s why each have their own manuals like any electronic device on the market.
This manual is specific to and targets the Chromecast and the TL-WR702N router setup, including specific settings required to getting the Chromecast up and running in a hotel using the hotel’s WIFI network.
